Part 1: Hot Rod Carrie
These events actually happened. However, I have embellished upon them to make a point. Husbands, read and take heed.

One fall morning, I, a mother of two rambunctious boys, ran late for work. My two boys, one three and one two were on the back seat fighting over a cereal prize. They were asked politely to stop fighting to give me time to think of a short cut to the babysitter and work. As usual they did not listen. I was trying to talk to the boys; therefore I was not paying appropriate attention to the road. when we came to a bridge, I didn’t see how close I was to the edge of the roade. When I did see, I overly corrected and was propelled to the edge of a ditch. It is called by some a ditch and others call it a ravine near Roebuck Golf Corse. Since this happened nearly thrity-seven years ago, the city put up railling to keep people from unintentionally driving in.
My car ended up at the edge of the ravine. I gave my two boys an evil look. I then asked them: Do you realize what you made me do? Stunned, the boys stopped fighting and looked out the window. As they began to cry, they asked: Momma, are we going to die? I took a deep breath and replied: I don’t know.

The boys sat quietly. It was a standard shift Red Ford Cougar with hide-a-way lights rocking at the edge of the ravine. I was not sure if I could back up without going into the ravine. In fact, I was afraid to get out of the car, because the disturbance may have caused more of a disaster. Before I left home a song kept going over and over in my head. You know how youn wake up with a song that just wont go away.
Jesus savior, pliot me over life’s tempestuos sea. Unknow waves before me roll. hiding rocks and treacherous shoal. Chart and compass come from thee, Jesus Savior, pliot me. As I viewed the scenery below I felt like I had entered the Twilight Zone. the song continued in my head. As a mother stills her child, Thou cast hush the oceans wild. Boisterous waves obey Thy will. When Thou sayest to them “be still” Wondrous sovereign of the sea, Jesus Savior, pilot me.
